with one'of'his soul stirring speeches, 
In which ho painted a glowing nurd- 
picture of th.o suceess of the spring cam- 
rmi^n for funds. Ho told tho workers 
that, although the cost of living is 
high, it ia also true that there sever 
was a time when work was more pi

campaign workers should not feel 
cooraged, bat eater tho campaign "with

Negroes arc imgrating-.tu the North

paring to crime in greater numbers in 
■he spring. They are attracted by 
the Isrger wages offered and by the 
uppostuoitics to enjoy larger persim- 
al, political and civic froodom. In some 
ni-tions nf the South, they stand in 
constant grind of 'personal violence

"I don't worrk any more) over Susi- 
neea. I used to. I've walked tbe floor 
many a night wondering bow on eorth 
I was going to- get, the money to pay 
bills which were almoat due, and not 
a. cent In sight. 

"One morning, when I came to tbe 
•tore after a sleepless Job of worry- 
ing. I backed myself up agnioat tbe 
counter and talked aome plain aenae to 
myself. I said, 'Henry, what are yon 
making such a fool of yourself for) 
You don't owe . that money. It- la not 
a debt. The business owea It not yon. 
It there's any worrying to do, let the 
bnntnean do It. If the liusincs* can't 
pa* lta debts lt'l bankrupt, and if If ■ 
bankrupt you don't want It and yon 
onght to let It go and get another one 
thin can pay Its debts. If tbe buKlnea* 
doesn't pull -Itself together and pay 
lta bills aa they fall doe, If you've giv- 
es the business a fair chance to make 
good for itself, you're not to blame. 
Xou've no cause to worry. And any- 
how what sort of a chance are you giv- 
ing It with your bloodshot eyea and 
brain all tired and mussed up. Henry, 
don't be a darned fool.' 

"Prom the time I had that little con- 
versation with myself, talking us a 
man to the merchantman, I've not had 
any trouble with my- business. I've 
given It a better chance. It pays lta 
bllla. Its debts are not debts till 
they're due when they are covered by 
notes or acceptances. I've gone home 
at night knowing that the business 
•wed all" or "seven thousand dollars. 
»ad to save my life I didn't know 
whera the business waa going to get 
tha money to meet the acconnta when 
they became debts due and payable. 
But the business keeps right along pay- 
ing Its bllla, paying me and my family 
a good living and a chnuce to help 
bouat the town, and best of all, there's 
nut a merchant In the state who has 
a better time, feela better, gets more 
f'.irt out of hla work, and stands better

The niiiservfiiion'of health is ,a question, no doubt, which Has 
CQiiie fnt'e to face vdtli every mlult of. the rape. Yet how few are 
those among "s who are making any toiiRilile effort .10 ward off din- 
eases, st><str as habits hihI tonne surroundings are concerned. 

This matter should he given serious consideration by all classes 
of people. Sirniijr hodies and strong minds are ttie most valuable 
assets a people fan have, '••'■ 1 . 

An official call has been made liy Mr. Kmniett St'ott, of Tuske- 
t;ee, asking 'hat, daring the 'week of- April 22-28, special attention 
be given eleaninjr. painting and beautify inn the home, and yard. In 
speaking nf the neneral movement, Mr. Scott said, in part:' 

"In addition to tlie co-operation of the leading organizations 
amoiin the Colored people, si also shall have the eo-operalion of the 
leading white organizations that are tvurkiiia: for health improve- 
ment ■ jn the country, us for example: The National Anti-Tuberculosis 
Association, The National , Child Welfare Association, The Alabama 
Anti-Tuberculosis Association, The Southern States' Ant i-Tubereulo- 
s-is Workers, The Metropolitan Life Insurance "Company, The I'ru- 
deatiol Life Insurance Company, The United Stales Public Health 
Service, and the various- State and City Health Departments." 

The need of continued, efforts to improve Nearo health condi- 
tions was especially emphasised at the Tuskepee Workers' Confer- 
ence, which had for its subject, "Health Improvement -for^ Effi- 
ciency.". It was pointed, o.ut that ill health among; Vegroes it caus- 
ing. urianeia.1 losses greater than "the combined revenue* raised by 
towns, counties and states tlironirhout the South; that education and 
health improvement will double NeRro efficiency ; that tuberculosis 
among Negroes costs the South, annually, enough to establish three 
thousand five hundred (:t,f>(X)) factories, which. might employ seven 
.hundred thousand (TtUVWl persons: that .contrary to the popular 
idea, malaria is more common amotiif. Negroes than among whites; 
that, in the malaria sections of the South, two Negroes to'one white 
person have malaria each year. It is through such efforts as the 
National. Negro Health Week that it. is hoped health conditions 
among Kegrom will be" greatly improved. 


All through Hie far South the prediction is made that the spring 
will see an exodus of Colored peojjc to the North in unprecedented 
number*. The outlook is.lieginijing t* > alarm, not only the southern 
while, but many thoughtful Colored men "are itravely concerned^ In 
some sections Negro busineas and professional men fear that they 
will feel the. effects. , • 

(If course, this movement of our people [roui the South (o the 
North is not an entirely unmixed Massing. . There mil be local and 
temporary disadvantages both in the Southend the North, but in 
the final' result the benefit* to the raee will bo if> overwhelmingly 
ureat as to cause ihe disadvantages to be lost to sight. 

The sentiment is 1 win jt expressed that the Negro in leaving the 
South is guilty of some sort of apostasy. Some people seem to feel 
that he is under a kind of moral.or religious-uliligation to remain in 
the. South. The truth is, the Neuro has every reason for leaving the 
South if ■ he can better his condition by doing so. Germans and 
Italians ort-i Hreelis. and people »f nearly every other nationality, 
lave come to this country and foresworn allegiance ti> their native 
lands, in order to better their condition; the Negro is only going 
from one aectoimi of his own country to another, but if this move- 
ment entailed his foreswearing the South he would he justified in 
so doing. 

There is absolutely nothing in,the mere 'phrase, "The South is 
the l<e*t place for (be Negro." .The bestrpiacc for the Negro is; as 
for any other man. the place where he ckn do beat. The only way 
to put any substance' into the phrase is for the southern white people 
to make the South the bent pho-e for the Negro, or. better, allow him 
to do it for himself. ■ * /-, 

The conditions that have come about have given the Negro, bis 
first opportunity to register, an effective protest against the ireat- 
ntent he has- so long endured, and he is showing his common sense. 
and manly sense in seising the opportunity. The tone of the south 
em press shows that the protest is going to produce results. 

Let the movement go on! The only danger that could arise 
would be for Colored people to go North faster than the economic 
demand there could take them in;, but there seems tobe no inVme : 
.diate prospect of that. • J 

It is strange to think how the great war in Europe is working 
out for the good of the Colored peoples of the wbrtd, and especially 
for the Colored people of the United Slates. . The race might well 
join inaiagin? th*t good old hymn, "find worka^jrn a Mysterious way; 
His wonders to perform." — Nesr'Topfc Age,

Berlin, Feb. IS.— The American, 
men who were brought prisoners to 
Germany ou the British ateamer.Tar- 
rowdale hare been liberated. 

The British steamer Yarrowdale 
was one of the vessels captured by 
a German raider In. the South AUanr 

harbhr December 31 with MB prison! 
ere on board, anions whom were Tl 
Americans. Early in the present 
month— the day ot severing of diplo- 
matic relations with Germany — too 
United States government demanded. 

the release «f ths. Americans. The 
following day it wga announced that 
Germany had acceded u the demand 
Later, It was announced the men ware 
being held until asauraacea had been 
received as to the safe departure of 
Count von Bernstorff aad the German 
consuls and the safety of Oerman war- 
bound ships In American waters 

Washington,- Feb. lg.— News' of the 
liberation of the 72 American seamen 
brought to Germany by the Prise ahlp 
Yarrowdale came after President 
Wilson 'wnd other administration off! 
olah had retired. Their release dis- 
poses of one of the most pressing and 
Irritating phases of the "— — gal 
American situation. 

A note peremptorily demanding of 
Germany that the Americans be re- 
leased was expected to go forward to- 
day. It waa considered probable now, 
however, that the government would 
ayah official confirmation of press 
dispatches telling of tho freeing of 
the Americans before deciding on the 
dispatch of the note. 

Any doubt as to the ruthless cnar 
acter of the new submarine campaign 
and IU viola lion of neutral . rights 
Idng since hsa disappeared, and the 
situation Is made graver dally by eg 
traratlug incidents. 

Even If the -president delays going 
to congress longer than It Is believed 
In most quarters he win, tho prases' 
session comsa t* an end in lass than 
three weeks, and It is regarded ss In- 
evitable that he will deliver another 
address on German-American rela- 
tions before congress adjourns.

Bio- de Jsudro, Feb. IE. — An officer

nado de Noronha. One of the- raiders, 
seriously hit, waa obaerved to be sink 
lug. Tbe others made- their escape. 
Night prevented the Amethyst from 
ascertaining to whst extent they had 
beea damaged. That .{hey had been 
damaged, however, la considered prob- 
able. One raider la believed to have 
beacbed'in a battered condition. 

The Amethyst aiffered slight dam-

Here. Pay-Up Lesion for the 
Kids at Home. 

Always Pay aula Regularly, Because 

It's Bsst to Oo So— Stingy Folks 

Usually Become Rusty Through 

Money Doesn't. 

. If you don't pay too much for It. 

Laddie, money Is a good thing to 
get. Some folks forget that money 
coats anybody anythiug and they try 
to gat something for nothing— which 
never happens. It costs sweat cnil 
timing and— but you alt down at the 
table there and write down as many 
thlnga as yon can think of that folks 
pay for money, health, chum life with 
children, the spirit of play — and things 

like that. ' 

If yon don't pay too much for It 
Laddie, money is a. good thing to 
keep. Some folks forget that keep- 
lug money costs somebody something 
all the time It is kept doing nothing. 
Money docant get rusty by being kept 
even if some Jokers ssjy It does. No. 

rusty. Their Joints get rusty, their 
friendships get rusty, their generous 
feelings get rusty, end sometime* their 
bills get terribly rusty-~tha bills they 
owe other folks. Soma of them — tho 
folks— say they must keep till the 
money they can get so that they can 
has* a good time some other time. But 
01 Getting the habit of keeping all 
of one's money Is a very costly usblt 
to get — It Is almost aa costly as the 
habit of keeping:, all of other, folk"* 

money one can get- hold of. 

If you don't pay too much for It 
Lassie, money Is a good thing to spend. 
The kind of stuff you're made of is 
going to come to the top plainest snd 
surest . tiy the way you use money, by 
what 700 have to show for It when 
you have spent if The best teacher 
In the world said thst the best way.U 
use money Is to bny friends with It. 
bo that when the money fails yon win 
have Mends to take yon Into their 
homes. . Lots of good people think the 
teacher waa talking tnrongh hla hat 
He wasnt no matter' what they think. 

Some people have to spend money 
before they, get it hut of course they 
have to borrow It from someone else 
who-wlll let them tske it and spend It 
Sometimes they glve.a nots which says 
they wlll'ge t back some other money by 
■/certain time and gi're It back to the 
man who lets them take his money snd 
spend it ; and they pay him for the 
uaa of Dig money. That's business. 
Sometimes they borrow stuff that a 
man has. paid money for and say. 
"Charge It," And he charge* It And 
then when he wants very much to sue 
the money ha paid for the goods sod 
asks the folks who borrowed the 
goods to let him have his money, 
some of tbe fofka sometimes get very 
aqary and smile him with hard word* 
and tell him to go to Helena, Arkansas. 
or some other sesport and keep on 
uaine tbe other man's money when he 

ought to have It to use In his' business. 
Nobody calls that business. Ton wDI 
learn when you are older what some 
folks do call It It U not nice for 
little children to aaX such words. • 
Very many people who like to do 
business have agreed to set a tun* 
when . everyone who hss borrowed 
books or umbrellas' or groceries or 
cow* or furniture or china sees, ami 
sold, "Charge It," will come together 
and have a great picnic — everybody 
will pay all -his bills so everybody else 
can pay all A Ms bills, and everybody . 
will start In business all over again. 
It will be the Jelllest picnic most of 

the folks have ever gone to. ' Do yon 
like to go to picnlcaT Well, so does 
everybody. Ton may now go and man.

Every Person Rial lias Part Credit 

Flay* In Commerce and Bad Ra- 

' suit of Unpaid Bills— So Pay' 

Up Your* Now. 

The Practice of ha Ting a "Pay Up 
week" each year hna taken well all 
over the country — and It bas now be- 
come a national habit to consider the 
loilMirturio'. In a~ bualnaa* sense, of a 
Pay. TJp week. 

Too many of ua get In the habit of 
having -things "charged." It I* so 
bandy, so convenient — seems like get- 
ting thing* without pay. We are all 
Inclined, to feel that we are going to 
have mnch more money some other 
day than we And In our pockets today. 

The reason that Pay Up week takes 
so well 1* because It has been foand 
of Inestimable help to the world of 
credit One of tno principal -slogum 
used for the occasion has come to bet 
"HI Pay My Bills, So Ton Qui Pay 

Yours." A moment's reflection will 
show yrhat • splendid thing* this la 
Think of how many times a (angle dol- 
lar may turn over In a alngle day, 
with, a practice like this. 

Too may owe the Jeweler a dollar 
for repairing -a clock ; aed the Jeweler 
may owe the shoemaker a dollar for 
repairing? his shoes: and the shoe- 
maker may ewe the batc h **- a dollar 

for a.ahln; and the clothier may owe 
the druggist for a bottle of medicine; 
and the druggist may owe yon a dollar; 
—so. don't you see, yoa get back jour 
dollar — and what a wonderful lot of 
debt* It t»a paid In the meantime, (tod 
you still have It. '.*■:." 

And you can go oa for yourself In 
this line, Bbowlor the Illimitable godd 
that a "Merry Dollar - can do In a 
day. by paying neglected bills. Every 
thinking person realise* the part that 
credit play* In modem commercialism 
and the baneful result of unpaid bllla. 
Credit haa been so abominably abused 
that every buttneaa man and dtisen 
feel* tha drag of the heavy credit load 
he la forced to carry. 

-Hurrah for "Pay Up Week."

elantly— Purpoae of Pay-Up 

Week Explained. 

All of the nation* in Europe are 
bound to reorganise, their whole busi- 
ness world, their social world, and 
probably their political world. 
Immense debts that have been piled up 
will compel each of the nations to do 
business in the most efficient of all 
possible ways, going, perhaps, to- an 
extreme of state control of all com- 
merce ami Industry. And this organi- 
sation of business Interconree win con- 
tinue for many years. The weight of 
business competition, manufacturing, 
transportation, soiling and buying will 
be directed chiefly against America 
because of . our . Immense national 

ffh and largely because of onr 
>rblal wastefulness and slipshod 
i ess organization. 
om m.antifncturer to wholesaler, 
" wholesaler to Jobber, from Job- 
ber to retailer, and between retailer 
and customer there Is bound to come 
a closer ami mure compact relation. 
Open book accounts will give place to 
trade acceptances;, credits which can 
be discounted for their full value, and 
'keep active in open channels the 
money heretofore tied up In open book 
accounts. This change Is nlready be- 
ing earnestly advocated by national 
buslnes* assodatlona as one of the 
flrst and most necessary steps' In the 
mobilization of American business. 
Rodah for Retailers. 
This change will fall hardest, per- 
haps, upon retail merchants. These 
persons are the only ooes In the whole 
chain of business relations who trans- 
act business with acquaintances and. 
neighbors and friends, and who an 
approached In business from the per- 
sonal alda. Credits will have to be 
extended to consumers for longer or" 
shorter periods of time, bat a new ele- 
ment must be reeognlaed as having 
come In and new relations between 
merchants and bankers aiM consumers 
will have to be worked oat 

Viewed from the social aide, retail 
trade has a new and vital Importance, 
a place In the scheme of community or- 
ganisation which cannot safely be sacrl- 
flced- Much blatant nonsense has been 
published about abstract middlemen. 
Concrete business. men and buslnes* 
women In most communities pay more 
taxes in proportion to ability and 
wealth, pay more, generously to pro- 
mote all public Improvements, and 
(rive more time and energy to welfare 
projects for the benefit of the whole 
community than do any other cUsa of

instead of being a curse is the profou^ertblesiing in Hie. ' " .'-.> 

Hunan labor then is no commodity, a thing to be bought and sold 
like cotton or com. Back'- of tha hand is the directing brain, behind the 
'sweat are human 'longings, the love of human hearts, and tfaa'tnirst of 
hmnen mind*. Capital, the exploiter of labor, ia but the labor of yester- 
day It is canned industry. •-' ' 

The unbolieat .combination tha world has ever known is the SsJBsl 
combination of the toil of yesterday, dehumanized under 'the jmi* of 
capital, against the throbbing, thrilling toil of today, the saWta**! *] wealth 
held in •ol-jiion in the sweat of todaj. 

Peace between labor and capital will come only to a larger cumhine, 
a higher fraternity, that will recognise the common, interests between the 
sefction man with his pick and tha president ' with his pencil and hi* 
"Beady Reckoner" of percentages.

Now the bat 

* way la which It ts used 
Bible. So we mr arrive at the 
ng of temptation b7 a study of 
wort Id the New Testament. 
Lthe ninth chapter of the Acts, the 
inty-slxth Terse, »« read: "Ami 
he was come to Jerusalem, he 
■jed to join himself to the disciples 
and they iters all afraid of him. not 
believing be was a disciple." This ref- 
erence is to Paul after his conversion. 
The word translated "assayed" 1 Is onr 
word "tempted.** Here it. means that 
Paul endeavored or tried to Join him- 
self to the 

ttied them that say they sre apostles 
and are not and found them l|ara." 

i time our word la translated 
"tried" and means to Or to tbe sense 
ot testing to ascertain the quality : aa 
for example, metals are tried. In this 
same sense the word is aaed of oar 
Lord whm we read: Tor la thst he 
himself hath suffered being taunted, 
he la able to anccar them that are 
tempted.'* (Heb. 2-18.) That la, our 
Lord'* steadfastness, or moral quality 
tried; It stood the test" and be- 
cause It did. be is able to deliver the 

Christ's experience in the wilderness 
helps us to understand that tempta- 
tion may be an endeavor to draw one 
away from virtue by suggestion to sin. 
This IS probably the common idea of 
tbe word. Yet, It by ho means com- 
prehends all there Is In tbe experience 

emp tattoo. We, therefore, con- 
clude from our' study thst anything 
which trie* or proves one aa to his 
character, his faith, his ateadfaatness, 
Wbether it be a testing qnder trial or 
a solicitation to do" evil, is a teuipts- 

Paul In his epistle to tbe Oalstlsns 
(4 ill) speak* of bis temptation in the 
flesh, Whnteve r that was, it was soirn, I J ™»°* by reference 



LESSON TKXT-John «:M-». 

OOLJJEN T.EXT-JsmiB Mid unto them. 
I am ill a bread ol iiiu.-Juiin 6:». . 

Following the feeding of the flye 
thousand, Jesus saw t*jo design of the 
multitude (v. 15), and separated him- 
self unto prayer.' Following that com- 
munion, the disciples went over the 
sett Jloward the City of Capernnuni 
<*. XT), but in his supernuturul power 
he followed tbem, walking upon the 
water (v. 19). Midway be entered 
their ship, and Immediately they 
reached the' land toward Which they 
iud been striving (v. 21 ; Mk. 6:48-46). 
The' next day (John 6:22) the people 
Who at this 'period were following bin) 
In such great multitudes, took steps to 
reach* him. Finding that he \fta» not 
at their side of tin- lake, they -took 
boats and came to Capernaum, "seek- 
ing for Jesus'; (v. 24). We read that 
the common people heard him gladly. 
These people wasted the comradshlp 
of Jesus, and the longest bread line In 
the world today Is that of hungry- 
hearted men. The question Is, are we 
willing to give tbem the loaves I of 
comfort T 

. I. Bread Which Perisheth (vv. 23- 
24). "If ryou think you will always 
get the loaves and fishes simply be- 
cause you have foisowed the Lord, you 
have handed yourself a goldbrlck," — 
Dr. Qrlffln Bull. Most of 'tis will go 
further for victuals than we wilt for a 
vision. When the people found Jesus 
(v. 2S) they rather reprimanded him 
for leaving them, when tbe fact of the 
matter was that he was not beholden 
to them In any sense whatsoever. It 
looks very well for these people to be 
."seeking Jesus," but they were seek- 
ing the wrong thing (v. 26). It was 
not really Je 
but tbe loaves nuil the 
not tos "algn" as ladles. tins* hla divine 
character that drew them, but simply 
the wonder as indicated by the fact 
that they expected a constant supply 
of bread, nor did they see In that 
bread the sign but only the bread. 

Salvation is the free gift of God 
apart from works.. Nevertheless he 
commands the exercise of will. "This 
is the work of God that ye believe on 
him whom he hath sent" (v. 29). This 
is not Inconsistent with ] Cor. 12:3, 
t. c, "No man can say that Jesus Is the 
Lord but by the Holy Ghost." Like 
tbe two blade* of % pair of shears, the 
executive act of my will in believing 
on Jesus Is met by the regenerating en- 
ergy of God's, spirit making me a son 
of hi*. 

The Jew* demanded a sign a* a con- 
dition of believing oil him. wheo. he, 
himself, was the greatest of all signs 
(v. 36). They nought to enforce their
